The idea for boys to dress like girls and girls to dress like boys didn’t go over well with some parents in an elementary school in Milwaukee.

The school sent parents a flyer announcing the special day — “Gender Bender Day.”

The school district said the day was completely voluntary and most of the kids did not dress up.

A few adults at the school did.

The principal eventually announced a name change for the day, calling it “Switch It Up Day” instead of “Gender Bender Day.”
